BOYSIE IS AT IT AGAIN!

But a straightforward mission start to go awry when his mark turns up dead without Boysie lifting a finger. 

Who killed him? And why? 

It is only when he is introduced to a sadistic finishing school, run by the mysterious and dangerous Doctor Klara Thirel, that the mystery starts to unravel. 

Surrounded by troubled girls galore, including a certain Petronella Witching, Boysie is pulled into the biggest espionage foul-up of the century. 

With the help of Petronella, as well as a handful of self-important, and at times incompetent secret agents, Boysie dives into the mysteries behind the dead Member of Parliament, the sexually charged finishing school, and – most of all – who and what is behind the top-secret Amber Nine.

The third Boysie Oakes adventure is now available from Amazon UK and Amazon US

BOYSIE OAKES IS BACK

The suave, womanising special agent for British Intelligence returns in his second thrilling adventure.

At the height of the Cold War, Boysie is sent on a routine mission to America. In San Diego, he will be the official British observer for the test-fire of America’s latest nuclear missile: The Trepholite.

But the Soviets have other plans. A double of Boysie has been sent into the field, and very soon Boysie is embroiled in a game of bluff and double-bluff involving a holocaustic missile, a slick con man - and Vladimir Solev, an deadly opponent and yet also a man in whom Boysie sees something of himself.

Yes the second Oakes novel is now available from Amazon published by Endevour Press.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OUR VISITORS

A Happy Christmas to all our visitors. It has been a great year for JG with all the Bond continuation novels being back in print and available as ebooks in the UK and (nearly all) in the US.

On other ebook news we have also seen the Kruger novels and the first of the Boysie Oakes books The Liquidator released in the UK and the US. There will be more to come in 2014.

We apologise that there has been a lack of updates over the last 4-5 months but this has been due to us changing over the websites host server. Everything is now running as it should (and faster we hope) and we are looking into updating the site with more content and links in the New Year.

So Happy Christmas and happy New Year to JG fans everywhere.

MY FRIEND, JOHN GARDNER

About a week or so ago I wrote an email to Otto Penzler a dear friend and publisher of my late father. Otto and his ebook imprint mysteriouspress.com are publishing in the US The Kruger Novels. I asked Otto if he had a moment if he would like to write something about himself and John Gardner. Let me just say I am so glad I wrote that email. Thank you Otto.

The site also says that the DVD will be made from a newly remastered version Here's the LINK check it out and if your in the UK give your US friends a nudge and ask for a copy for Christmas.
